I would definitely recommend Darren to you.

We’ve had Darren do several different jobs for us including a large and complete bathroom and laundry renovation. He has done small  jobs such as gyprocking walls, replacing doors and stud walls, painting etc. Most recently he completely changed our decking on both the front and back of our home. He also built our expansive pergola and erected privacy screens around our boundary. Darren always does a thorough job and pays particular attention to detail. He is a very neat and tidy builder who cleans up after himself and arrives when he says he will. Most importantly he listens to what you want. You definitely need Darren if you want a professional job done.

We had been searching for ideas and for someone to complete them, until we were admiring a friend’s new pergola. He recommended Goolwa Pergolas & Decks without hesitation, because he was so happy with the job they’d done. We had a fair idea of what we did not want and Matthew translated that into a visual design we liked. They arrived when they said, contacted us whenever some unexpected delay occurred and finished up by cleaning all offcuts etc from the garden. Minimal damage was done. The result looks great and completes our peaceful garden. Now we have a friend as well as someone we can rely on for future work.

I am sending this note to say thankyou for a job well done with our front verandah ramp. Complaints never go unnoticed and praise rarely expressed. Not in this case as we feel we have a 5 star job with a 3 1/2 star price tag. I didn’t tell you before you started our job, that you would be working for possibly the biggest perfectionist in Goolwa. When the job was finished, I had to say to my wife, I could not have done a better job myself. I can assure you that’s thehighest praise I could give to anyone. Keep up the competitive pricing, friendly & prompt service & professionalism, and I’m sure your business will do nothing but grow. Thanyou once again and I see no reason why anyone would wish to shop anywhere else..

We had been searching for someone to assist us in extending and covering the deck at our property and a friend recommended Goolwa Pergolas & Decks. From the outset Matt could not have been more helpful, with design options to complement our property. Matt acted with professionalism and courtesy at all times. Work was completed with minimal mess or disturbance to us or our neighbours. He provided photographs of the work to advise us of the progress. When asked to change and add on work, eg changing kitchen window and back door, adding built in seating.... Matt was positive advising us of the best solutions. Once all work was completed Matt ensured we were happy. Numerous people have commented on the quality and workmanship of the deck and have asked to look around and have his details to provide quotes for them. We now count Matt as not only a recommended builder but also a friend and would highly recommend Matt for any building work people may have.
